Overview

Have you ever wished you could go back in time? Maybe to Ancient Rome, or to see how the Egyptian pyramids were built? Science may not have come far enough to grant us this wish, but genetic science can give us an incredible picture of our past.

How did cultures different cultures develop? How did humans migrate around the globe? All these questions, and many more, can be unlocked with genetic advances.

In A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived: The Human Story Retold Through Our Genes, we get the whole story of human history, as told by our genes. Adam Rutherford dives into our past and the evolution of our species. The further we go back, the easier it is to find the root of the misconceptions we have about race and society. We find that we're all much more alike than we ever thought. And using this fascinating genetic past, we can shed light on humanity's future.
